Sayyidatina Aisha (Rady Allahu ‘Anha) is one of the most important wives of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). She was born in 9 B.H. and she passed away in 58 A.H, living up to 67 years old. Her whole name is Aisha Siddiqah bint Abu Bakr as-Siddiq. She is the daughter of Sayyidina Abu Bakr Siddiq (Rady Allahu Anhu). Her father is a close Companion of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and is our first Khalifah. She is known as one of the Mothers of Faithful Believers as she is the Prophet’s wife.

We know that she is one of the most important wives because Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said that one day he had a dream. In that dream, he was presented with a gift from Heaven. When he opened that gift, he saw Sayyidatina Aisha. What that meant was that Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta‘ala) informed Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that he had to marry Sayyidatina Aisha (Rady Allahu ‘Anha).

Many of the wives of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) were widows, divorcees, or captives of war. Sayyidatina Aisha (Rady Allahu ‘Anha) was not any of them. She was the only virgin that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) married. Among women, Sayyidatina Aisha (Rady Allahu ‘Anha) reported the greatest number of Ahadith (Sayings) of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
